RE: old fileattr files - safe to delete?

If you are using CVSNT as a client and CVS as a server then they were
"simply" watches.

However if you have CVSNT on the server then I suggest you subscribe to
the CVSNT list instead:

If you are using CVS as a server and CVSNT (or TortosieCVS/WinCVS)
extensively as a client then I recommend upgrading the server to CVSNT
2.5.03 (available for free for Linux/Unix/Mac/Windows).  CVSNT server
generally works best with CVSNT client and has many additional features
for commercial software development such as mergepoints (visual tracking
of when and where merges occur), change sets ( group and track and merge
changes by an arbitrary group), failsafe audit to database (if audit
fails then so does the client operation) and a separate "contention
lock" service.

Hi Arthur,

Thanks for you comments, but too late!  They've gone.  They were very
old and applied to users who've now left.  Are you sure these are
different at the repository end, if cvsnt is being used?  I can see how
that could be..
